Ray, you were apart of our little but loving immediate family. I'm going miss your jokes. Even when you weren't doing good, you always asked how us girls were. You're at peace and that gives me comfort at knowing so.

The story I want to share is about the first time I met my brother Raymond face to face. 
One afternoon, during my shift at Gold Circle, I was working a register and he was in my line. 
I knew from the moment I saw him that he was someone special. He just had an air about that spoke of a gentle soul, and once I got to know him I knew my first impression was correct. 
We did not grow up together, but my mother always told me about him. I never believed that we would meet in person, but I was so happy to be wrong about that.
We had our ups and downs, just as most siblings do, but after all was said and done, love was the emotion that prevailed above the others.
